As instructors we know our students are short on time and high on the need to create as much physical impact during their time with you on their mat. This very specific practice creates more strength-based body awareness and balance for those who often choose deep stretch/unwind–style classes that offer no base of fundamental strength and support to their bodies. This practice is ideal for two types of students: the one whose entire posterior chain lies asleep, over-lengthened, and weak from hours sitting in a car, a chair, or standing too long; or the one whose strength-based program is entirely too focused on the anterior chain/front body with a yoga practice that has seen one too many forward folds. We strive to release the muscles of our low back, glutes, and hamstrings without realizing that they are in fact tight due to weakness; stiff due to stagnation and lack of proper movement, and in desperate need of being recruited, rehabbed and reminded of how strong they truly are. Your Posterior Chain is quite literally what is holding you up.

If you truly want to kick-start your metabolism and get that internal fire-starter working for you and not against you, listen up! You need more lean muscle tissue, better sleep, and specific training practices. You also need to learn the proper strategies to fuel your body to not only optimize your training, but also heal your digestion, balance your hormones, and tap into your body’s metabolic fire without burning out your adrenals and wasting your energy. Did you know muscle burns about three times more calories than fat? As we age every day, our body loses more muscle mass and more easily gains body fat, especially visceral fat around our vital organs, increasing your risk of cardiovascular disease, insulin resistance, diabetes, inflammation, auto-immune disease, and hormonal havoc. The key is to fuel, train, and heal your body in a way that brings balance and harmony back to your most vital hormones and systems in your body. Then add a combination of targeted, strength-based moves to your yoga practice that will not only challenge your larger muscle groups, such as your chest, back, shoulders, and legs, but also your smaller, stabilizing, accessory muscles of these areas and your entire core. Be prepared to sweat your way through this eye-opening, life-changing workshop and practice!
